Vistaheads Tip#15 - How To Turn Off Data Execution Prevention
Legitimate programs can be caused a lot of trouble from Vistas Data Execution Prevention. This is meant to stop bad programs running but can also see some good programs as being bad because of it's behaviour.

To turn off Data Execution Prevention for everything try this.

Click on the Start menu and in the search box, type "CMD". Right-click on the CMD shortcut that appears and select Run as administrator.

Then type the following:

Quote:
bcdedit.exe /set {current} nx AlwaysOff
It should say that everything is ok.

To turn it back on again, type the following

Quote:
bcdedit.exe /set {current} nx AlwaysOn
If this does not work take out {current} and it should work.

Remember you have to be running the command prompt as Administrator.

regards

Steve
